Paella Fiesta

Slow Food Members and Friends enjoyed a tasty seafood paella day on February 28th, to see in the end of summer.


Daniel and Margarita from Oscars Deli at Warrawong guided the group to make the paella from beginning to end.  It was a lot of fun especially when Murray’s sangria and the tapas were passed around the busy workers.  The tapas included some chorizo and spanish style jamon produced in Sydney. Helen made a tasty marinated fish tapas dish as well.  Beverly did a great job setting the Spanish theme in the Gerringong Town Hall.  Dessert was  delightful spanish cream pots with slices of locally grown tamarillo.

Trisha Ashelford, the coordinator of the Kiama  Farmers Market gave an informative chat about the workings of the Farmers Market, the growth in the two years its been operating and it’s success in pulling the local community together each Wednesday afternoon was applauded. She works really hard in her role and it is good that Slow Food Saddleback can help with special events like the up coming Seniors Week Market on the 6th April where we will showcase locally grown produce.

A  day full of fun and learning for everyone.


Looking forward to our next event EARTH HOUR at the home of Judy and David Ball for homemade pizza on 19th March 2016
